Meet our September All-Star, Keury! Keury is a Soccer for Success graduate and has been a Soccer for Success coach-mentor in Los Angeles, CA for two years. Her journey as a participant and a coach-mentor is inspiring. In high school, Keury was an avid soccer player and requested to be in the program as a 10th grade student, even though the program was originally designed for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. She chose Soccer for Success because soccer programs and leagues that served her grade level were inconsistent and constantly losing coaches.
Keury fell in love with Soccer for Success, and as a result of the program, she gained confidence, became healthier, developed a desire to try to new things, and developed a passion for making a difference in her neighborhood. Because Soccer for Success made a big impact on her life, she decided to return to the program as a coach-mentor. Keury wanted to help create a culture of health within her community through her work with Soccer for Success. Since becoming a coach-mentor, she has made a significant impact in her community; she has taught health and nutrition education to the youth she serves, and has inspired children, families, and community members to adopt healthier lifestyles.
We are honored that Keury is one of our coach-mentors and can’t wait to see the additional impact she will have in her community. Thank you for your dedication and passion for making a difference, Keury! You are truly an inspiration.
